commercial architecture may soon jump to a completely new level in the realm of sustainable design. currently under construction, the 'bullitt center' in seattle
by american firm miller hull partnership uses a strategic combination of all the passive and active green strategies in the book. the six-storey mixed-use building
will be so self sufficient, in fact, that it will strive to meet the requirements of the 'living building challenge' whereby a structure must be completely independent
from the grid in terms of water and energy for at least 12 months. implementing green building technologies, renewable energy, and energy efficiency measures,
along with a calculated solar array and integrated water catchment and onsite filtering, the bullitt center will also provide the basic human necessities of
natural light, views, and fresh air to every square inch of the construct. the structural frame is sourced from FSC-certified wood from a renewable nursery,
efficient radiant heating maintains comfortable temperatures in the winter, and hazardous materials or compounds containing hazardous materials were used.
water and electricity will be generated 100% on site, despite their reputation for the lack of sun. the interior systems will also include composting toilets and a waste
management plan. the project will be a milestone for commercial architecture in north america, as it is the first to drive the ambition for such extreme sustainability,
and as they are currently leasing spaces, you too can become part of a page in history.
